I tell ya, God has and continues to test our strength as we continue on with his plan. We still don't know exactly what that plan is and to be honest, lately as I sit and listen to Macie have seizure after seizure, knowing I can't do anything to stop them or make them better, I may or may not have questioned his plan more than once! But today I come home and find this on the wall above Macie's head. Theresa, Macie's nurse put this up. It's Macie's birthday (5/6/99) gift from her. If this doesn't fit Macie to a T, nothing does. Yes I may question Gods plan in all this, I don't know why she lays in bed and has seizures. Is she in pain?? Is it her brain trying to start back up??? I lay in bed and wonder those questions most nights. Thank goodness to Marine Corps, that taught me to deal with little sleep. One day God will provide answers to these questions. Until that day we will try and provide Macie with as much comfort as we can. And each and every one of you that post on this thread, provide me and my family with the strength and comfort to push one. For that I thank you.

Sometimes the only excuse you need is "I want to". It can't always be about everybody else. Don't sweat it, y'all are doing an amazing job with your little girl. She knows and feels the love, and you scratched a few things of the need to do list.

Bit of my philosophy I learned at an early age: If you don't take care of your self, how can you take care of anybody else?

We all need a moment to our selves and Him, from time to time.

Not really starting out to be a good weekend or end of the week. Yesterday the nurse, turned the cold water off instead of the hot water. Needless to say Macie has some pretty good blisters on her legs. Not good going into our Legal Guardingship meetings. I know it was a accident but man am I upset with her. Its not like she didn't know, she's gives her a shower 2 times a week.

I realize now that by thanking Ricky it may seem that I'm thankful to each and everyone of you that keep up with Macie's story. That's certainly not the case. I was thanking Ricky because he put it into a different perspective than I had thought about and really changed my thinking about the whole ordeal. Yes Macie has been through so much more and these burns will heal.

These last couple of months have been really trying on all of us. Every night like clock work Macie starts having seizures. The one blessing is they are not violent seizures, she just moans and makes loud noises. At first we thought she was laughing but way back, during one of her eeg's they confirmed they are seizures. It's so hard to listen to them, knowing that there isn't anything we can do and they are slowly having a negative effect on Macie. We still believe that God has great plans for Macie and that helps push forward.

Brian, don't let this get you down. God knows about nurses mistakes and other thing that we get frustrated at.

Your family has blessed, encouraged, shown patience, increased our faith and shown us that as you go on you keep looking to the Father for answers. Y'all have endured more than most and have been been Victorious in many, many battles. You inspire us to stay strong and to endure what ever may come against us. Your lives are testimonies to what a life of Faith can do. All of us here on the GS have prayed and will continue to pray for these things you request and strength for all of you.

As Ricky mentioned you've been down this road before and worse and He's seen you through. God's got this!

Father we ask that you ease Macies pain and the seizures will stop and that you give Brian & Keili a peace that passes all understanding and joy in knowing that you're in control and a Love that can't be described.

God Bless the Gardners!!!
